Another eventful summer ahead...

Late spring has been a time of significant change for me for a decade now. I'm always having some major life event, moving, switching jobs, and sometimes doing all three at once. Let's take a look at the time line.

Ten years ago, about this time, I was starting my first job in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. 

Seven years ago, about this time, I was just settling into my new job at The Sun in Yuma.

Four years ago, about this time, Jeffrey and I got married and then moved to Tucson from Yuma for him to start law school.

One year ago, about this time, Jeffrey had just graduated from law school and we prepared to move to Phoenix for Jeffrey to begin his clerkship at the State Court of Appeals.

Now this year, at this time, we're waiting patiently to start our new status as parents AND preparing to move (AGAIN! I KNOW!) from Phoenix to Prescott for Jeffrey to join a law firm there as an associate.

In the last 5-6 years ...

I've held 6 different positions with my employers:
Copy Editor/Page Designer
Special Sections Designer
Art Director
Publishing Services Specialist
Marketing Assistant
Account Manager

I've prepared to move 4 times:
Yuma city to Foothills
Foothills to Tucson
Tucson to Phoenix
Phoenix to Prescott

No wonder I'm exhausted!

Me, looking exhausted and like I have a major weight problem, walking a trail at Watson Lake in Prescott, AZ while one million months (36.5 weeks) pregnant. We were in the town to check out neighborhoods because, that's right! We're moving again! Looking forward to staying put for a few years...

  1. You have every right to be tired and ready to settle in for a while---Prescott sounds even better than Tucson(if that's possible)--and with 2 flts from Denver every day, I can visit A LOT!!! With all those accomplishments on your resume, you can work, OR NOT, anywhere. Congratulations on the start of a brand new experience. You all deserve the best!!!
